Actor Owen Teague (“Bloodline”) is reuniting with It director Andy Muschetti for the upcoming Hulu pilot “Locke & Key”, says Deadline. Teague is the third actor from It to sign on to the horror-fantasy drama, joining previously announced cast members, Jackson Robert Scott and Megan Charpentier.
“Locke & Key” is an adaptation of the IDW comic by Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. Written by Hill and directed by Muschietti, “Locke & Key” revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine with their mother Nina (Frances O’Connor) only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
Teague will play the role of Sam Lesser (pictured below), a violent and deeply troubled adolescent who kills his own father and then goes on the Locke house and shoots the Locke kids father to death, in addition to battering their mother.
The pilot also stars Jack Mulhern and Danny Glover.
